[quote]...Jean-GĂ©rard Gilbert, the director of a private high school in the city's center, was abducted at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday at the school's front gate. His wife, Maryse Gilbert, said he called her half an hour later. "I've been kidnapped," he told her. "They shot me two times in my feet."[/quote]
When I was in Secondary School (Institut Georges Marc), Gilbert was my Math teacher, a very skilled man. I really hope he can survive and be released for the sake of his family and students.

Gelin,

I went to primary school with Gilbert. We were classmates. I know his brothers and sisters and they are devastated. It is a shame that our generation allowed our beloved country to be in the situation it is today. The violence is no longer far away. When will we understand the interest of each is our interest?
